that president obama is thinking about this. we know that leaders in other countries are as well. but it's an issue of broad importance importance to the public. everybody should be concerned about the balance being struck between protecting safety on the one hand which with is obviously important. and protecting our fundamental freedoms and rights to privacy as well. so as important as private discussions are, this is too important to leave to private discussion alone. >> and i also see that the companies are trying to expand your own encryption to make it harder for outsiders to come in and scoop up or take what you have. tell us a little bit about that. >> certainly we realized as an industry that there are more governments. this is not confined to any single country, that are seeking to hack their way or tap into cables and collect data so here at microsoft but really across our industry, companies increasingly are taking steps. increasing encryption that puts everything in code when it's going across the cable, for example, so the government cannot read, necessarily what it might be

of the man? what did he mean to his country? >> el with, he -- well he means. i think the challenge is to live up to the example as he set, as president obama indicated. what was great about mandela was his respect for the rule of law. think about it for just a moment. 27 years in jail on an ill legitimate situation, his advisor said no no no you can't do it, you can't appear on this case of rugby and discrimination, a libel set of some sort, it was that stubborn sense of fairness which kept the process on track. and we americans owe him and the country of south africa a great debt. because nothing would have torn this country apart in the 1970s or perhaps in the '80s but a race war in south africa. so all i want to do is celebrate this wonderful, wonderful man. >> i actually want to pick up ou had been appointed by an african american president, you had seen the current day legacy of nelson mandela in south africa. how did it resonate? >> it resonated incredibly --hie country. you know from people on the street to people in government. everyone aspires to live up to the legacy he l
